I don’t seem to have a lot to say lately. Mostly I’ve been working on the new jewellery website, and that’s a fuck of a lot of work.
First I tried using a shopping cart page but it looked too commercial, not like something personal. I played around with that one for weeks and even though I didn’t like the look of it that much – although I spent a lot of time with a design, in the end it just wouldn’t do all the things I wanted it to do.
So then I spent another couple of weeks designing the site in a wordpress format. I found a shopping cart plugin that worked perfectly.
Then? Then I checked the site in Firefox and it was totally screwed. Fucking Firefox.
So then I had to redesign all over again and look (at the beginning) to see whether the site worked in IE and Firefox. I finally came up with something but it’s not as nice as my first one so of course I don’t like it as much.
I’ve now started uploading some of the jewellery pictures. But of course any old pictures I had are no good because things need to be a certain size. So that means taking pictures all over again.
This has been a big pain in the ass. And I also downloaded some add-ons to that shopping cart plugin. I had to buy the add-ons but, guess what? They didn’t work. And when I contacted the guy, he wouldn’t get back to me except for the first time to say, oh you probably have a server issue. Ya right, server issue. Everything else works but all of a sudden when I’ve paid for something, there’s a server issue.
So right now I’m in the middle of a paypal dispute to try to get my money back.
That’s just some of the stuff I’m up to. I’ve put so much work into that website that I’m already sick of it. And yet if I ever want to sell anything, I’ve got to get a fuck of a lot more up there than 10 things.
Y’see, that’s why I’m not blogging that much. Now what’s your excuse?
